Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty
Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty (BCHP) develops and implements strategies to end hunger through policy, education, research, community organizing and community development.
As of 2022, BCHP helped create 27 Hunger Free Community Coalitions across Texas, toward a goal of reaching all of the state’s 254 counties by 2030. Domestic success informs its global vision for the future of food security.
The Hunger Data Lab harnesses Baylor’s interdisciplinary resources to provide easy-to-access data that informs and connects those seeking solutions to food insecurity.
